Mark NAISON, professor of African-American studies at Fordham University, co-founded the BATs.

BATs are everywhere. They think high-stakes testing is child abuse. They think that evaluating teachers in relation to student test scores is nonsense.

Mark Naison here posts a hilarious parody of New York’s educator evaluation system, untested, being built in mid-air, that old airplane cliche.

If you are angry about high-stakes testing, watch it.

If you are upset about the loss of teacher autonomy and professionalism, watch it.

If you want to laugh out loud, watch it.

If you work for the New York State Education Department, DO NOT WATCH IT.

Be careful, laughter is dangerous.
